Song: Somebody To Love.
Download this classic track from: iTunes & Amazon.
There’s a lot of TV ads around right now featuring music from Queen, such as the Hyundai Genesis’ First Date which uses ‘Another One Bites the Dust’ and Diet Coke’s IT’S MINE that includes a cover of ‘I Want It All’. But for this great new commercial above, Honda have gone with ‘Somebody To Love’.
Added to the Japanese car manufactures YouTube page on February 1, 2016 and set to air during Super Bowl 50, this ‘A New Truck to Love’ ad shows a group of sheep performing the classic rock track acapella.
I’m not sure who’s providing the vocals for the sheep’s parts (call me cynical for not believing it’s actually them singing), but the music you hear playing from the trucks stereo is the Queen original.
That brings us to the point of the ad, which is to promote the 2016 Honda Ridgeline’s truck-bed audio system, along with its impressive class-exclusive dual-action tailgate and in-bed trunk. Having just watched a flock of sheep singing in tune, I don’t know why I was surprised to see the video finish with a talking dog, but I was.
Written by the bands lead singer and pianist Freddie Mercury, Somebody to Love is taken from Queen’s 1976 album ‘A Day at the Races’. Check out the songs official music video right here:
